He is business oriented. His office and tools are old. I would not go back.

I was lucky enough to find a same day appointment, which is rare! But shortly after I made my appointment, I received a call from the office saying they were double-booked and that there would be a long wait. I was confused because it looked like he had earlier availability accoridng to ZocDoc. But it sounds like they have a new admin system that is not yet integrated with ZocDoc. So I ended up waiting for 1 hour to be seen, which was not ideal.

I went to see Dr. Baron because I had been suffering from tinnitus for five days. The tone in my ear was disruptive enough to impact my sleep and work quality. While his bedside manner is perfectly friendly, during my 10 minute visit Dr. Baron indicated he would do nothing, and rely on the tone disappearing on its own. He sent me off to a standard hearing test. The test was inconclusive (no surprise), but it took me a week to get Dr. Baron to respond with the results. Still no treatment suggestion. Another week goes by and after calling repeatedly, I still haven't received a call back. Months later I've received a bill in the mail, but no treatment and am now the proud owner of chronic tinnitus (permanent in 3/4 of patients if not treated). Really, really disappointed.

Wasn't very attentive, just gave me a very quick diagnosis without looking very much and sent me on my way without really giving me details. Had to go to another doctor to fix my symptoms.

Dr. Baron was to the point and efficient in checking out and taking care of my ear problem, but he was also kindly and compassionate. That kind of bedside manner is well-balanced and reassuring. I would definitely see Dr. Baron again in the future.

After a nightmare of an experience at Golden Gate Urgent Care (walked in without hearing in one ear, walked out in pain with bleeding ears and unable to hear out of both ears), Dr. Baron saved the day. I was late to the appointment, and he was still so pleasant. It was a quick appointment and I walked out of the office hearing out of both ears like I never had before. I learned about the anatomy of my ears and now go back to see Dr. Baron about once every 4-6 mos. He is a miracle worker.

Dr. Baron's office staff were courteous, and wait time was minimal. Dr. Baron himself was very understanding of all my concerns. While he quickly identified the issue, he took time to answer all of my questions, and to schedule a follow-up.

Dr. Baron was efficient and answered all of my questions. The receptionist was nice, but I heard her on the phone being a little curt with another patient (although she did relay to the doctor that I had been waiting a little long and was on my lunch hour, which was appreciated!) My wait time was 20 minutes, and the office didn't appear to be busy. I would suggest giving yourself time to come to this office! Overall though, I would come back.

Seemed like a pretty basic exam, but then my issue isn't a serious one. Advised me to do what I'm already doing with one additional treatment to add to that. I think he could have spent a few minutes reading the info I had submitted through ZocDoc before seeing me - appeared he may not have done that.

He's a lovely doctor. If you need a quick fix from infections or hoarseness, he may not be the right doctor for you. If you want honesty and health for the long run, he may be the doctor for you.
